This line makes for a good warmup for your bouldering head. It's different than most of Hueco as it's mainly footwork with very little in the way of hands. Feels quite a bit harder than most of the other classic V1's. From the back of the A-frame climb up the smooth bullet face on your left. As you get higher the angle lowers, but somehow it still feels like you're climbing.

To descend walk around to come down the standard Bawl and Chain descent. Or continue over to the Gymnasium to continue on the highball warmup tour.


Once at the small potatoes area, crawl under the boulders to encounter the A-Frame area. The entrance is about 10 feet left of the highball face of Bawl and Chain.


A cool head, a pad and spotter can be used to protect the lower moves. Up high it's best not to fall.

Powerful, reachy start and balancy footwork with bad slopers for hands up higher made this problem seem harder than many v3s in the park. I'd conservatively grade this problem v2 at least. Oct 26, 2014
